Had a remote starter installed yesterday on my 2000 Explorer XLT. Last night I
set the heater for high and was looking forward to a nice warm car in the
morning. Opened the door, no heat. This thing is set up for only the
accessories like radio and windows to come on. Is this normal? Is there someway
I can have the heater come on as well? Or is there some good reason not to have
the heater running while the remote start is working?
before you park the car at night just turn on all the stuff you want
running when you use the remote starter in the morning.. did you know
that in every state it is against the law to have a vehicle running with
no driver in the car???? unless you are on private property?????????
and dont ask why they sell this stuff as they also sell guns and knives,
but you cant use then like you would want to can you????
that almost makes sense.... it seems it was installed incorrectly... they
tapped into the wrong wire.. insted of tying the acceries and the ignition
they onlky tied the ignition through the remote start... usually they take
it from the key "on" posistion i thought.
oh well.. bring it back
Of course I can use my guns and knives exactly as I want to, to kill the son of
a bitch that tries to harm my family or me. I guess your punctuation and
spelling are reflective of you high intellectual and cognitive ability. I hope
you do not vote, that way you are not canceling out my vote, or that of someone
like me who knows how to think.

I suppose you are not familiars with remote start systems. You
are correct with the 'running/unoccupied thing, but remote start
cars can not be driven until a key is inserted. Any effort to
move the vehicle disables it.
I would suggest the system is installed improperly by whomever
did the installation. The HVAC system should operate in the
remote start mode.. You will discover that you will benefit more
often from the A/C operation than the heater as time goes by.
